11.2 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass
(8/11/15 best-by date)

L: almost entirely clear yellow to yellow-gold, white head of foam, about 1/2-inch tall; little stick or lace

S: sweet banana, lemon, sour grain ... bubble gum sweet

T: follows nose but a bit more lemon/tartness than sweet; not cloying at all

F: very drinkable, lots of carbonation, light midweight

O: another fine Flensburger brew ... everything they do is solid, perhaps not the best but very to style -- same with this hefeweizen. it's got all the right notes in all the right spots and is super drinkable. the clarity is different, almost a kristalweizen look

A - Awesome swing top 11.2oz bottle. Pours a murky/cloudy burnt amber body with a fizzy 2-finger white head that subsides quicker than most hefs. Ok lacing.

S - Muted aromas of banana and yeast. Not much clove and no hops to speak of, per style. Not as vibrant in the smell as I would like but the aromas I do get are spot on for the style.

T & M - lively carbonation that leads to a somewhat dry mouthfeel but stays wet enough to be very refreshing. Straight up banana right off the bat with a light lemon twang. Good malt backbone that is crackery. Relatively light-bodied. Again, very refreshing. Becomes a bit musty as it warms and the flavors break down a bit IMO.

O - I certainly liked this one and will drink it again. Not the best hef out there and not as refined as some but it is truly tasty and refreshing.

A - Orange color, medium carbonation, white foam, staying in the glass.
S - Orange and banana, but weaker then expected for Weizen.
T/M - Stronger bitterness then expected, with some decent hops in it. Aromatic, fruity.
Low carbonation.

O - Not bad at all.

I found these at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL for $2.99 each. 330ml brown bottles with a swing top cap and a freshness date stamped on the bottom of the back label.

The beer poured a cloudy golden yellow color and made a 1-finger white head that lasted a few minutes before settling to a thin white cap.. Lacing was minimal.

The beer smelled like a bowl of Wheaties with bananas on top. There was also a swweet buttery toffee aroma.

The beer was high in both wheat flavor and bananas but low on clove spiciness, although some clove was present. A sweet buttery toffee flavor was also present - like the center of a Heath bar. Hop bitterness was undetectable.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

This is a good hefewizen, but also a non typical one because of the toffee sweetness. I'd recommend it and gladly open a second one.
